Weeklong Deals for 7/22/19

I can only imagine how hard it’s been, picking through the blasted hellscape of Weeklong Deals in the wake of the great summer sale. But fear not, for your trusty guide has returned to make sense of it all. It’s not a bad week to be back, either, with indie darlings like Megaquarium and City of Brass offered up. There’s plenty of trash, too, so watch your step on the way to the goods.

I’ve been announcing it everywhere since I got back yesterday but we’re back on regular schedules for the website and Twitch. Tune in tonight at 9pm PDT for the start of The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories, and look forward to two new Steam reviews this week. Also, I’ll be announcing something special and series-ish on Thursday!

Good to be back

Megaquarium (Review) – Deep and extremely charming aquarium building & management sim

City of Brass (Review) – A slower-paced FPS roguelike with some insanely fun combat

Haque (Review) – Interesting low-res take on the classic roguelike structure

Unworthy (Review) – *Dark Souls platforming intensifies*

Unforgiving – A Northern Hymn (Review) – Extremely solid first-person indie horror based on Scandinavian myths

Slain: Back from Hell (Review) – Hilariously metal and hard-as-nails platformer

Hexcells (Review) – Very clever Minesweeper-ish puzzler

Hexcells Plus (Review) – Yay for more Hexcells, but picks up in difficulty right where the last left off

EDGE (Review) – Slick puzzler about rolling a cube around platforms in space

Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride (Review) – Solid hidden object game with notably vibrant graphics

Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi (review) – Interesting older FPS with horror and roguelike elements

Submerged (Review) – Extremely atmospheric adventure, just weak on the actual gameplay

Gun Metal (Review) – Passable giant robot action

Letter Quest (Review) – Cute Scrabble-ish adventure that gets hard in a hurry

Black Paradox (Review) – Rad retro side-scrolling shooter with some crazy weapons

Mutant Mudds Deluxe (Review) – Hardly revolutionary but still a solid platformer

Actually nevermind

Forward to the Sky (Review) – Too short and clunky to make for a very compelling 3D platformer

The Bridge (Review) – Fails to live up to the expectations of its inspiration

Darkstone (Review) – I’m sorry but this clunky ARPG wasn’t even good when it was new

Razenroth (Review) – A boring waste of a cosmic horror roguelike

Twin Sector (Review) – One of the original garbage indies on Steam

House of Evil (Review) – Hahahahahahahha yeah ok
